Japan is reportedly looking to introduce new guidelines on mobile phone charges with a view to lowering overall consumer costs from as early as 2010, the Asahi newspaper reports. Under existing legislation, Japan’s mobile main network operators – NTT DoCoMo, KDDI, Softbank Mobile and eMobile – are not bound by specific pricing vis a vis the connection fees they pay each other for terminating calls. As a result connection fees have been allowed to stay artificially high at around JPY35 (USD0.38) per three minute block, resulting in higher end-user mobile charges, it said.
